The doctor decides to check baby Clark’s hearing by emitting sounds into his ear canal. Due to the super-hearing, baby Clark lets out a cry that shatters all of the hospital’s windows as well as setting off alarms of all cars nearby.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

  • According to Zack Snyder there was also a scene he cut which did not make the Ultimate Edition. "We had a scene that we cut from the movie where Superman tries to look for Martha when he finds out that Lex has got her.

Because when he was looking for his mom, he heard all the cries of all the potential crimes going on in the city, you know when you look.” [4]
